#Wozza2022 | David Worrall signs new 2 year deal

4 February 2020

The club are delighted to announce that David Worrall has signed a two-year contract extension with the club.

"Wozza", as he's known as around the club, has proved to be a vital player this season for the Valiants, with his career at Vale being revilitalised since John Askey's appointment as manager last February. 

In his third season at the the Vale, Wozza has already got 33 appearances under his belt with four goals to his name this campaign, and the midfielder recently celebrated a milestone for Port Vale.

On a memorable day for the club and fans, Worrall made his 100th club appearance in our third round Emirates FA Cup tie against Manchester City. 

It was the midfielders goal at MK Dons that sparked our FA Cup journey into life, when he headed in James Gibbons' cross at the back post to send us through to second round of the competition. 

The midfielder has admitted in previous interviews that he came close to leaving the club last season for the lack of playing time, but has since become a key player for John Askey and has now committed himself to the club until the summer 2022.

Hailed by Worrall as an important influence in keeping him at the club, manager John Askey 

"David's done well since I've come in. He shows a really good appetite for the game, he's been consistent with his performances and he's still only 29! 

"He's still got a quite few years left in him and I think he's a good signing for the football club. He's the one who very often sets us off with his energy to close down and those are the type of players you want."
